Adults must be very careful in who they associate with and what they say to others on the internet. What may seem like a fun, casual conversation meant in jest or in fantasy can have life-altering consequences if you are accused of soliciting a minor. You could face lifetime sex offender registration or jail time if convicted.
In America, you have the right to an attorney. It is crucial that you exercise this right prior to speaking with police or investigators. Confessing that you “messed up” or saying you were “just playing around” with no intent of follow-through can bolster the state’s case against you.
